power and the russians aren't interested in plan that leaves assad in power. the russian speak of a bloody chaos that could occur, the rebels are making significant gains, gaining momentum. one rebel fighter says we're going to fight all the way to bashar al-assad palace. you have the priors for both sides, sectarian civil war and proxy war in the sense russia and iran are protecting assad and the other gulf states are supporting the rebels that are fighting fiercely. as long as they're willing to keep fighting, proxies supply them with money, political cover and weapons, so it's difficult to see how a peaceful solution will happen while everybody on the sidelines is pouring money in to continue the war. >> neil: the. >> the civil war in syria contributing to a growing refugee crisis. >> crisis is putting it lightly. there's 150,000 refugees in turkey. that number is growing expo tensionally. not only are people flowing across the border into turkey and jordan. thousands a day are trying to flee their homes and flee this violence. these people have to be fed, closed and during
general decided to defect to join the uprising against the sir ran president assad. the head of the military police appeared in a video aired on middle eastern news saying he's joining, quote, the people's revolution because, quoting again, the army derailed from the basic mission of protecting people and has become a gang for killing and destruction. this could be one of the most senior military defections in the nearly two-year long civil war that activists say killed more than 40,000 people but it has not stopped the syrian government from attacking its own men, women, and children. a human rights group reports the regime shelled a bakery and killed 20 people, including at least eight children. we cannot independently confirm that. we're joined by a journalist who specializes on middle east affairs. this is a significant defection, lisa, and it appears from the you don't see that you have bashar al-assad losing his grip on power. >> absolutely. this is one of the most significant diminishing of power for the bashar al-assad regime. we've seen the military be a full support
for weeks laying siege before making the final push tkafrplt thpush today. the regime of bashar al-assad has losing control of the territory in the pass few months. >> many u.s. servicemen are expressing a desire to be with their families. for now they have each other and a pretty nice spread to boot. >> i wish i could be home with family and friends but all the people are so cool. >> this is a time where everyone gets together and shares good food, and laughter, and it's a good time of year. i certainly would like to westbound my family at home but we're serving here in afghanistan for a good cause so i'm happy to be there. >> no soldier left behind. nato forces are due to withdraw from the country on 2014, they are speeding up the efforts to train the afghan military units before they pull out. >> it looks like george h.w. bush will be spending his christmas in the hospital. he has been undergoing treatment for a bronchitis-like cough since november. doctors are cautiously optimistic that president bush's son, former president george w. bush has been among the visitors at the hospital. no
government. both the assad regime and the opposition rejected it because it would involve the two sides sharing power. now they want to revive the plan but is it desirable? >> the reason simply because assad once he begins to loosen the absolute control of he has of everybody around him in the military he is severely weakened and very vulnerable to being killed even by the people around him. so he knows that in the back of his mind. it is all or nothing proposition for him similar to saddam hussein and qaddafi. even the rebels themselves. they have lost 40,000 in this fight and they're not about to share power with anybody. particularly the assad government. i mean these are people they have been fighting now for almost two years. patti ann: yeah. >> so it's not in the cards. patti ann: yeah. and the plan is vague when it comes to assad specifically during that summer meeting in geneva. there was a push to call specifically for assad's ouster but russia opposed that. and as you say, assad is not going to go quietly. russia though very involved. how important is russia's role in all of t
the rebels are certainly getting pounded by bashar al-assad's air force from above and his air force still controls much of the skies. its becoming a particularly critical situation on the ground inside a number of the rebel strongholds because the medical supply shortage is happening. you have these mass casualty events like the bomb eupblgs and therbombings and there is really no way to treat the victims. the rebels are gaining momentum, better armed and organized, better command and control facilities there inside of northern syria and they are trying to push into a number of towns which are controlled by those loyal to president bashar al-assad. this will be a real test for the rebels in the coming weeks because they have been used to mounting their attacks in the relative safety of cities which supported them and now awful a sudden they will be operating in truly hostile environments where they do not have the hearts and minds of the people themselves. the latest reports out of syria, though, show no progress on the diplomatic front. so far the one peace enjoy who has been able to mee
about the regime and president assad because he is now joining the rebels. this is may be why the russians are starting to think about talking to people. there are report that is the syrian deputy foreign minister now in moscow for talks possibly trying to negotiate some kind of settlement, some kind of transition. how that would look where it would be anrd early transition rather than this civil war pushing out what is left with the regime whether that would be okay with the syrian rebels is left to be seen. the number one thing to watch is russia but the wildcard here is iran. they have been key to their support of president assad, sending him weapons, even men and members of the revolutionary guard to help fight and lead syrian soldiers in this civil war. if russia goes by the side and tries to negotiate a settlement you look to iran and does iran continue to push president assad, continue to support him, or, does iran back down? that is what we'll actually see some change there on the ground in syria, jamie. jamie: i think you hit it on the head because clearly iran is med
to figure out a way to at least put their toe in the water, figuring a way to move president assad out. it doesn't appear at least that the russians have any altruistic values in it operation than they're likely to save their own influence inside syria than let jihadists or something take over that they can't talk to considering how serious russia and syria have been as allies the last couple years. look what is going on the ground. a general in charge of the military defense group, the military police there inside of afghanistan, inside of syria, pardon me, he just redecked over to turkey and is joining the rebels. this is the most serious high-ranking defects we've seen in a while. that shows another part of the momentum turning toward the rebels, away from the government who are becoming increasingly isolated inside of their cities, unable to project power. the army we heard is running out of supplies, though russia is still resupplying them as of now. but the rebels are becoming increasingly successful with their attacks. the big wildcard if russia tries to figure out a way to nego
that if some point* russia will abandon assad the rebels think russia will lose all influence which is what they do not want to do. then there would be a transitional government, of constitution, the election for right now it does not seem they will take any part of the deal. the human toll is astronomical refugees growing exponentially. 150,000 across the border in turkey. also jordan mostly women and children. in the long term what will we do with these people on top of those who have lost loved ones? tracy: humanitarian crisis. will we finally see president assad go quietly? a christmas wish for peace and syria. with us we have volleyed carries you know, this better than anyone. starting with egypt president morsi completes a referendum you say it is the totalitarian it is long state? >> and a referendum without democracy moving forward but without acting as a democratic president in egypt despite the fall of dictator it is established by president marcy most of symbols -- societe they all oppose morsi so it does not look like in 2013 we will see a more democratic egypt. tracy: then wha

president bashar assad. working to negotiate an end to the fighting of the syrian army and rebel forces. what happened in the the violence increased dramatically in recent days since his arrival. and just yesterday activist said a government air strike killed dozens of men, women and children. they were waiting in a bread line in central syria and dozens more civilians were wounded. this is amateur video it. it appears to show the aftermath. fox news working to confirm that. let's get back to leland vittert live on the west bank. what's the latest? >> jamie, the rebels are now claiming president assad's forces are using some type of poison gas or some type of chemical weapon against them. again, not something that we can confirm independently but if it is true, it would mark a major escalation. >> ache if i vistas upload offed a number of videos claiming to be victims receiving treatment in a local hospital. while the video is totally unconfirmable. it appears it show people suffering have tear gas and other irgantz and not suffering from chemical weapons like saran gas. time and moment
is happening to bashar al assad. dramatic high-level defections that show no signs of slowing down while a civil war rages on. more and more it seems people in the regime do not believe the government will win, and so they are abandoning it. assad's chief of military police, his defection enforcer, this week was almost poetic, before defecting his job was to stop other people from defecting. his department was literally tasked with shoring up the loyalty of the armed forces. and he didn't just easily and casually walk out of the country. according to opposition figures, who talked to the "new york times," he planned his escape for weeks and it "ended with a four-hour sprint by motorcycle to the turkish border, driving through woods and on muddy roads." the syrian spokesperson, the one who said publicly that the assad regime would not use chemical weapons on his people, he supposedly left weeks ago, and no one seems to know where he even is. the guardian reports he might be in the united states working with intelligence officials. something the state department denies. meanwhile, an oppos
and the u.n. has still not been able to remove president bashir al assad after months and months of in-country conflict there. what can the president do. not only from a standpoint of the white house, but from an international coalition to look at getting bashir al assad out? >> i mean, we've been working on it for quite some time. we didn't want to get militarily involved. we've seen what happens when we do get militarily involved. we don't like the results. take a look at libya. take a look at egypt, for example. so though we think -- we know we're on the side of right. there's one big ondestruction, and that is russia. russia is a series of clients of russia's, putin has said, you guys, you americans, you can't be sank moneyus about how people live their lives. you want everybody to be like the united states. okay. you saw what happens when you try to foment democracy in places that aren't ready for it. we're here to tell you that if you try to upend assad, even if he is going to ethwe'll go out of business -- >> on his own accord. >> on his own, if you try to do that, you won't lik
to back in jeune. but, of course, getting agreement if there fr. the assad side and the rebels the and the government, that's a tall order. he's an experienced negotiator. there seems to be some momentum with a flurry of talks and shuttle-type dip ploemmy but he still said and lamented syria is deteriorating rapidly. and as he said there's no u.s./russian plan. there may be discussions on options. can will there a transitional government formed and then elections but we're still not at that stage yet, suzanne. >> do we think he's bringing anything to the table that kofi annan did not who failed in brings these sides together? >> yes. and in failed, it may be a matter of timing. certainly the matter of violence has an eastbound. 40,000 report lid dead. brahimi has not had that success either but he's plugging away. he's been the man in the field from the u.n. from haiti to yemen. he's not going to give up at the moment, but the key is russia perhaps may be pulling slightly away from president assad, wa wanting to get something resolved but moments ago it was said that the plan t

of anti-assad sentiment in that town. because of that, they believe this town was deliberately targeted as a part of a retaliation plan by the government. don? >> russian diplomats have been talking about possible asylum for assad. this bombing today has to play a part in the discussions in damascus. >> reporter: well, we certainly think it would have to, absolutely. and really is there any more striking juxtaposition as far as the failed attempts thus far by the diplomatic efforts of people like brahimi and kofi annan before him when you compare that to the horror on the ground, where hundred dollars of people have been killed according to the activists. time and again we've seen brahimi or before him kofi annan, regional power players, international power players, the u.n. and the arab league try to go into syria and try to forge some sort of path to peace, and why et it seems to have fallen on deaf years. these peace plans don't seem to take hold. the activists we spoke to said they don't believe this time will be any dferent. they fear for what will happen next. in the nearly two ye

. it doesn't look like there's any budging from either side. president assad still says that he is going to stay on and continue to fight there inside syria. the rebels say they will accept nothing short than the regime falling, all this amid the rebels continuing to make more and more advances, continuing to close the noose, if you will, on the battlefield especially around president assad's stronghold there in the capital of damascus. russia, though, is continuing to protect syrian president bashar al assad. obviously, that is the transitional plan that something along the lines of what the rebels would endorse would have assad leaf in the beginning -- leave in the beginning. this june peace plan put forth out of geneva calls for a transitional government, a new constitution and then elections. i don't think there's anybody that has much of a hope of that happening. the only thing that may change the russians' minds is they look at a chance the regime in syria is going to totally collapse meaning russia would lose all of its influence in what was one of its strongest allies around the
